    1. Hi Joyce ,
      The cookies are kid proof ... healthy for them . Thanks for stopping by :)

  5. Hi Nee,
    First, how are the children doing??? I'm glad you made cookies. Cookies are comfort food:) Actually, I could use a couple of these yummy looking cookies myself. Of course the fact that they are "healthy" is a good thing too.

    Thank you so much for sharing, Nee. Hug those little darlings for me, will you:)

  6. Hi Louise ,
    The kids are coping much better , thank you . They are talking about the good memories they had with Maxy , They have gabs of photos off Maxy and Hubby brought some albums for them . They understood why we could not let him suffer , but their healing process is going good .

    I've baked so many different cooking I dream about them . I wish I could pass a couple ;-D .
    I hugged them for you and Baby boy (named after hubby , but we call him 'Man') said he was sending you kisses and hugs . That boy is a riot .
    Thanks so much my friend for stopping by ....(((HUGS))) to you and Marion :).

  7. Hi Nee, I'm so glad to hear the children are adapting. It may take a while but at least they can freely share their feelings. Tell that baby boy I love kisses and hugs! And please thank him for me. Marion is doing GREAT! She loves her hugs too:)

    1. Good Moring dear Louise ,
      I think the shock is wearing off , kids are much smarter than a lot of grown-ups give them credit for . Glad to hear Marion is great ... did she pick the first tomato ? Baby boy asked his daddy do you make drunk food , he laughed and said , son , only your mama makes drunk food . Thank you so much for stopping by my friend :)


Hi friends, thank you for stopping by and for taking the time to say hello. The welcome mat is always out and the coffee is always hot .I really appreciate your sweet gesture!
